Secure your domains with our Registry Lock Service

Our Registry Lock Service allows registry-level protection for domain names and/or hosts (name servers). The service enables to set Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) server (registry) status codes on selected domain names and/or hosts to prevent malicious or inadvertent modifications, deletions, and transfers.

The following EPP server status are included in the Registry Lock:

  • serverUpdateProhibited
  • serverDeleteProhibited
  • serverTransferProhibited

Key Benefits

  • Combat Domain Hijacking

Protect high-value domain names against unauthorized modifications or deletions.

Server level statuses augment protection provided by client level statuses already in use.

  • Secure the Communications Chain

Enable end-to-end domain name transaction security
